Several string today mention difficulty with USB devices, Cameras et al.,

Bear in mid that in the majority of cases small USB devices draw power from the Computer power supply - the more devices plugged in the bigger the drain - the slower the putter or some devices not working.
Plug in the device you want to use and keep other off the system or obtain a self powered
USB hub.
